    Hi everyone!

    Hope you are well. Just wanted to introduce myself as a new Audi A8 owner from the Midlands.

    When I say new, I mean new to me, not a millionaire...just yet :(

    Its an Audi A8 (2012) 3.0 TDI Quattro and my first Audi after owning BMW X5's, 7-Series, and more recently a Range Rover Sport. I was hoping for one with a BOSE sound system, sunroof and in grey / black however in the end opted for silver as the car is in immaculate condition. I'm a tad OCD so like my cars to look perfect which is difficult when you're not buying a brand new one.

    It has 1 owner from new, full Audi service history and only covered 31k miles. This is important as I do a lot of motorway miles.

    So far I am absolutely loving it!!!!! Its a proper driver's car despite being a high end, luxury cruiser. Seriously no idea how Audi pulled this beauty off.

    My only gripe is the sound system which is poor for a car of this class.

    Overall, delighted!

    Congratulations. I had a beautiful 2015 D4 Audi A8 and upgraded it a few months ago to a 2019 new shape D5 which I regret doing. The 2010-2017 A8 (D4) was definitely the "high water" moment for the A8. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Pics to follow, thanks for the welcome :)

    On another note, can anyone recommend a decent (read perfectionists) to get window tinting done? Thanks!

    Lovely cars! You are the first person to dislike the D5. I had one for a few weeks and loved it. Although my current car is a D3 S8 so older tech but the D5 (petrol) was very good.

    Welcome! That's the problem with buying a second hand car, you can never find the perfect spec! I searched for many many months before finding my S8 and although I would have liked a different colour and one or two extras, it was the best one around for many many months

    Fair points and as I haven't driven a D4 I can't really compare. Down to personal preference I guess. I see the D5 S8 has a few videos released, now that I do like!

    Three weeks on and I still have a smile on my face!

    I do have a to-do list though:

    1. Windows tints
    2. Improve sound system
    3. New alloys

    Has anyone upgraded their A8 sound system on here?
